Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Talk to the guy I have a crush on ><

I don’t even know how I began to like him. Ever since I came here I see him all the time in the computer lab. At first he’s just like everyone else who goes there all the time. I had talked to him several times before but I didn’t even know his name. Then, late this semester, I suddenly started to think about him a lot. It is still a mystery to me how that happened. I think it was the music that he was playing, or whatever. Maybe I fell for the “atmosphere.” And he is quieter, which makes me think that we may have a lot of common points. Yesterday, I went to the computer lab to study, and then all of a sudden he came in. I looked at him for several seconds and was going to talk to him. He also looked at me. However, I eventually shifted my glance and lowered my head back to my book. I was going to ask him about how the psychology test went, but I guess I was too shy. If I didn’t like him, I would have asked him. There are only two days left of school and I think it is a little bit too late. If he’s living here again next year, maybe I’ll try to talk to him more.

I just can’t stop thinking about him. I hope this is just a crush and that I will forget him soon. I think with my lack of confidence no guy would like me, at this point. It would save me a lot of trouble and sadness if I could just stop thinking about him.


blahblahblah14 is chilling

Aww, go for it! Especially if there are only two days of school left. Also, if you’re both quiet, he’s probably never going to make a move. If it goes badly, you won’t have to see him for an entire summer at least, & if it goes well, good for you :) It’s better to just do it then have to think about it all summer.
